BMW Releases Official Specs on the New BMW 135i Coupe...306HP and 0-62 MPH in 5.3 Seconds!

Most of the day today we were all gawking at the recent spy photos of the new BMW 135i Coupe that revealed the exterior sans camouflage. Click Here Well BMW UK went ahead and released the full specs of the UK version of the car. The big news is that they released the full specs on the 3.0L inline six-cylinder twin turbo engine in the 135i.

In the UK there will be three engines offered: two diesels, the 120d and 123d, which we probably won't receive in the US anytime soon, and the 135i.

The 135i will put out 306 horsepower and is capable of reaching 0-62 mph in 5.3 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph! The 123d coupe also has a twin-turbocharged engine that puts out 204 horsepower. BMW boasts about the fact that the engine in the 123d is the world's most powerful 4-cylinder diesel engine. The 123d coupe also features Start-Stop Technology and Brake-Energy Regeneration. The 120d features a 177 horsepower 2.0L four-cylinder engine.

Pricing has yet to be released. It is still rumored that BMW is going to fully reveal the new car on July 1st.

UPDATE (06/28): The U.S. will get this car this October and it will be offered in two versions, the 128i and the 135i. The 128i will produce 230 horsepower and 200 lb.-ft. of torque. 18 inch wheels will also be standard.

And the same car in the US will cost 15% less than it will here. We get the big F-U from car companies.

0 - 60 will be more like 4.5 - 4.7 region. With Vishnu tuning & an LSD and sticky rubbah you can probably see 11's 1/4 mile.
